Judson Press: February 2010, paperback – 192 pages, US$18.00, ISBN 978-0-8170-1572-5
Tending to Eden is written by the Executive Director of Plant With Purpose, a Christian non-profit organization, with operations in seven countries, working to reverse deforestation and poverty by transforming the lives of the rural poor. Sabin therefore brings a cross-cultural perspective and a wealth of practical experience to this resource, which will benefit anyone working in development, or simply wanting a better understanding of the link between poverty and ecology, earth and gospel.
The book contains the theological foundations for environmental stewardship, practical strategies and case studies, and chapter study guides for those wanting to use it in a group.
